luther king jr., the home county of mrs. ralph abernathy, the home county of mrs. andrew young. and because of what happened to him, we made a decision to march. in selma, alabama, in 1965, only 2.1 percent of blacks of voting age were registered to vote. the only place you could attempt to register was to go down to the courthouse. you had to pass a so-called literacy test. and they would tell people over and over again that they didn't or couldn't pass the literacy test. on one occasion, a man was asked to count the number of bubbles on a bar of soap. on another occasion, a man was asked to count the number of jellybeans in a jar. there were african-american lawyers, doctors, teachers, housewives, college professors flunking this so-called literacy test. and we had to change that, so we sought to march. and we got to the top of the bridge. we saw a sea of blue-alabama state troopers-and we continued to walk. we came within hearing distance of the state troopers. and a man identified himself and said, "i'm major john cloud of the alabama state troopers. this is an unlawful mar

action. i remember going down to the martin luther king center at mrs. king's invitation of speaking their during the time was there -- probably 20 years ago. i referred to rebel and -- ran martin luther king as reverend king and not dr. king and she said, thank you. reverend is what what mattered most. that is what the find him and set the course of his politics. host: what do you make of this piece in "the christian science monitor" talking about the changing landscape in new england. people are leaving the mainline churches and going toward alternative churches because, some are saying, these churches to not get involved in politics. guest: that are going to the ones that cannot get involved in politics. it is a complicated message. i imagine if you probe a little more deeply with the colts been interviewed, you find all sorts of reasons. people not just turn away from religion because it is getting involved in politics. it also like the message. they like what the church stands for. i notice a move in areas of traditional religious faith toward more evangelical churches -- whethe

committee. i thank mr. bilirakis. we have worked together on a number of legislative initiatives and i thank him as wls for his service, along with -- as well as his servicers along with chairman king and our democratic ranking member, mr. thompson, for their leadership. it gives me great comfort to be able to come on the floor today and say thank you. even though no one wants to see a homeless hero, a homeless veteran, i spent over the holidays time visiting a number of our centers where homeless veterans are and i can tell you that they are the most giving and charitable persons. many of us will be able to rount on thanksgiving day or depurg -- recount on thanksgiving holiday or during the christmas holiday to be able to serve veterans who unfortunately, not of their own doing, have fallen upon hard times, do not have a place to live and are coming to the various food pantries and food kitchens. it is one of great pleasure to me, not for their condition, but to be able to humbly provide them with a warm meal. this is a commonsense legislative initiative that says to homeless heroes, every
